I'm assuming you know who I am...

I'm a full time professional artist and an experienced teacher.  I love paint, paper, mixed media, abstract, representational...okay, I just love painting! I also enjoy and get really excited about sharing what I know with students and seeing their work take off from there. I feel blessed that I get to do both of these things for a living!

See You In The Studio

Painting In A Series Workshop


F1VEart Studio & Gallery
Saturday May 21, 2022
10 to 4


There are many advantages to working in a series of paintings. Artists can work on several pieces at the same time creating a consistent style, even when showing some variations. The subjects, colors, techniques and sizes creates a uniformity that shows beautifully on a wall whether in a home or a gallery exhibition. This workshop will focus on painting 4 pieces to create a series.

In this workshop you'll be working on two series;  three water color paper warm ups and three wood panels, using mixed media techniques with papers, paint, stencils and ephemera.  When the panels are complete you'll learn how to back them and get them ready to hang on the wall. Supplies for hanging will be provided.

The Painting In A Series workshop is the first in a series of monthly workshops being taught by professional artist Denise Cerro at the F1VEart Studio, each workshop will cover a different painting technique and process. These workshops will be kept to small groups of five students, to offer the best individual guidance and instruction in a small friendly gathering.  

All basic supplies and materials will be supplied for this workshop...if you have favorite colors of paint, papers, ephemera, please  feel free to bring them along. I look forward to seeing you in the studio!
